What do I need to do this year?

MY LEVEL 1 IS EXPIRED or EXPIRING THIS DECEMBER, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
You must attend a Level 2 clinic AND complete the online age-specific module for each age level you are coaching if not previously taken prior to December 31 of the current playing season. Mite (8 and Under) coaches may remain at Level 1 (even if it is expired) until they move to another age level of play.

 

MY LEVEL 2 IS EXPIRED or EXPIRING THIS DECEMBER, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
You must attend a Level 3 clinic AND complete the online age-specific module for each age level you are coaching if not previously taken prior to December 31 of the current playing season. Mite (8 and Under) coaches may remain at their current level (even if it is expired) until they move to another age level of play.

 

MY LEVEL 3 IS EXPIRED or EXPIRING THIS DECEMBER, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
You must complete the online Level 3 recertification (Track 1 or Track 2) or attend a Level 4 clinic AND complete the online age-specific module for each age level you are coaching if not previously taken prior to December 31 of the current playing season. You can no longer attend another Level 3 clinic to recertify your Level 3 certification. Coaches of National Tournament Bound Tier I 14U, 16U, and 18/19U and Tier II 16U, and 18/19U teams must complete Level 4 the first year they are able to do so. Mite (8 and Under) coaches may remain at their current level (even if it is expired) until they move to another age level of play. You can determine which recertification track by looking at your information on the online certification list. Click on your name and you will see your full information. If there is one Level 3, then you would complete Track 1. If there are two Level 3s, then you would complete Track 2. If there are three or more Level 3s, then you must attend a Level 4 clinic.

2019-20 Season Volunteer Opportunities

 

Our Program is completely run by volunteer.   Each player's family is required to cover: 5 shifts including 2 in the concession.  Other opportunities include time clock, score keeper, and penalty box.  Team managers will track shifts & fill in those players' families who do not fill the shifts themselves.  If you have multiple players in the program, you will have to work 10 shifts.  Please do your share to help!  These shifts DO NOT include the additional tournament and jamboree expectations. 

 

If you feel that you need training in any of the volunteer opportunities please contact Naomi at 218-750-4509 or vaha.reg@gmail.com.
